The Holy Corporate Municipality of McDonaldsland is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Ronald McDonald with an iron fist, and remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, frequent executions, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.724 billion McCitizens are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Spirituality, and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of McDonaldsland City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 36.8%.

The frighteningly efficient McDonaldslandian economy, worth a remarkable 3,087 trillion McPennies a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 242,660 McPennies, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,604,146 per year while the poor average 14,165, a ratio of 113 to 1.

A baby's first breath is also a baby's first felony, crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, dealers go from pushing drugs to pushing up daisies, and raindances intended to summon storms instead attract tourists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. McDonaldsland's national animal is the McNugget, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Capitalism.

McDonaldsland is ranked 207,455th in the world and 10,064th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 8.2 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
